Open Enrollment 2014: Invest a little time in all of your benefits

The information included in this email does not apply to conservation officers, excise officers, Indiana State Police plan participants, part-time employees or contract employees.


Invest a little time in all of your benefits

The providers for dental and vision care remain unchanged for 2014. Coverage also remains unchanged.  But the best news is that premiums will be the same this year too!


The dental plan through Delta Dental provides 100 percent diagnostic and preventive coverage, as long as an in-network dentist is used.

Also covered 100 percent is emergency palliative treatment (used to temporarily relieve pain), x-rays and sealants (to prevent decay of pits and fissures of permanent back teeth). There are limits to the coverage of sealants, however, so check with Delta Dental before agreeing to the treatment.

By using an in-network dentist oral surgery, fillings and the repair of diseased, damaged or injured teeth is covered at 80 percent of the cost. More information is available about dental coverage by logging on here:


Vision and health conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be revealed and detected early through a comprehensive eye exam.  Take care of your vision and overall health while saving on your eye care and eyewear needs. 

The vision plan through Anthem Blue View Vision offers employees and their dependents a large network of ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, retail locations and discounts. Look for providers in the Select network at

Before you make your selections for open enrollment, do your homework. Look at your health care costs over this past year so you will know what your expenses have been. Then review the information on the three plans available for 2014. Input that information into the Benefits Calculator and from there, make an informed, educated decision.

If you have further questions, attend one of the town hall meetings or webinars or talk to a Benefits Specialist.
